As it turns out, no news was bad news for Percy Harvin.
With Harvin getting a second opinion on Tuesday regarding the treatment options for the slight tear in his hip labrum and no one saying anything about the content of the second opinion, the signs pointed to surgery.
Tonight, Harvin eliminated the mystery by sharing the bad news on Twitter: “when everything is goin good sometimes life throw u a curve ball… sorry to half to report that my injury will require surgery…”
It’s unclear when the surgery will happen, and how much time Harvin will miss.
“Nobody was more anxious and excited about [this] season then [me] ….but I will be back strong as ever..i appreciate all the love and prayers 12th man,” Harvin said.
Harvin got the second opinion because team doctors suggested that he receive treatment and play. Dr. Bryan Kelly obviously recommended that the labrum be repaired with surgery.
In March, the Seahawks sent a first-round pick, a seventh-round pick, and a 2013 third-round pick to the Vikings for Harvin. They also gave him a six-year, $67 million contract with a $12 million signing bonus to be paid in full by the end of the year.
